I picked up this 2nd hand guitar for $250.00 from the music store I was teaching in at the time (Guitar World). I had a fret dress done on it for $50.00 and played it for years.
I don't use it anymore because the Paul Reed Smith replaced it. The pickups that are now in it were the ones that were originally in the PRS. Plus it's quite a bit heavier than the PRS so I've retired this guitar. I'm waiting for the right kid to come along to give it to. Some kid that has a lot of drive to really play with maybe a single mom who can't afford a decent guitar. The PRS was given to me so I'll give this one away at some point - keep the good karma going!
